From cluttered garage to organized (hopefully) wood shop!! #2: Progress!

05-23-2016 11:02 AM by PeterDominic1983 | 0 comments »

So got these fancy new 4’ LED lights to replace the ancient 8’ tube/ballast lights… theyre SUPER bright, so for now theyre upside down! Thinking I might make a plexi diffuser or something in the future… Anyway, starting to get things cleaned up a bit. Throwing away TONS of stuff.. there is really only a few categories of items: keepers (to keep in garage, or some other area of the house), sell/donate (ebay, craigslist, verage, something like that), and trash! A...

From cluttered garage to organized (hopefully) wood shop!! #1: As it currently stands...

05-23-2016 09:26 AM by PeterDominic1983 | 5 comments »

So I have made the decision to turn my garage into a part-time, hobby type wood shop. I do construction and residential renovations as my primary income, but this is my true passion! I also changed my major in college to “Fine woodworking and Furniture Making” which I didn’t even know existed… turns out its an Arts degree, and they offer transfer opportunities if desired… The way things currently stand, my garage is about 350 sq ft, with the previous homeown...

New member hello from SoCalWoodGal

Howdy all!I’ve been working with wood for 4 years now, (though I did have that magical semester in 8th grade woodshop- dang I loved that class) and have made mostly furniture for our house and charity auction items for church functions and occasional commissions from friends.My big project right now is new kitchen cabinets for our kitchen- classical rail and stile raised panel doors with one set of glass front upper cabinets, plywood box construction with wood face frames. I’m slowly working ...

MAKING A TALL STAVE CONTAINER #2: Making the Dados for the Bottom

05-23-2016 08:41 AM by stefang | 14 comments »

StrugglingMy apologies for being so late with this follow-up to the first blog in this series. I had to do a lot of work to get our garden into shape for the spring/summer season and it went pretty slow for me this year as I am getting old and decrepit. RecapYou might recall that I had finished coving the staves for this container on my table saw. This is only going to be a utilitarian item which will serve as a moveable 2nd leg a for wall hinged work bench and I only did the coving for m...

I had a good day with the table top all progressed wellI removed the clamps with mixed feelings however all was well.That was refreshing so I decided to sand the paper off and have a good look at it There were a few gaps and holes that I will need to fill other wise I was very happy with the result The next step was to add the secondary edging, for this I had a piece of oak which was cupped beyond use in its present form so i decided to cut it up.It also had has a bit of twist a...

Greene & Greene Magazine Rack - my "own" design #3: Adding joinery to the Sketchup model

05-22-2016 11:47 PM by Mike_D_S | 4 comments »

For design purposes where I often draw components and then remove them, I usually take the easy route and draw things as overlays rather than as a real part. But at some point you have to actually build something and that takes some type of joinery. I’m still an amateur, but I’m slowly learning. Doing the joinery in sketchup helps me see how things could fit together. So here is an example of how I do it (which I’m certain is not the easiest way). When I start...

Toy costruction #55: Last day of the 32 Lincoln Kb

05-22-2016 06:08 PM by htl | 22 comments »

I got this plan from Grizzy for $4 on sale and I must say it was a blast to build this car and that’s not even talking about the wheels I made.All the different angles to play with on the fenders and all, makes it turn out just right and looks really nice once built.I know all the votes were for the tanker truck but I’m really glad I waited so now I have a better idea of what is needed to really soup the truck up I think.They sell a fancier version of the truck at T&J that I w...

SawStop Assembly #8: My Adapted Solution for Overhead Dust Collection

05-22-2016 04:07 PM by HappyHowie | 2 comments »

I found bonesbr549’s post on his solution to optimize the overhead dust collection on his SawStop. I was going to attempt to apply his solution to my new SawStop. I went to my local Woodcraft store today in hopes I could find all the dust connector devices I would require. I got lucky. I can put all the parts together, but I will add a rubber connector for my SawStop 4” port. I will connect the 90 degree angle bend part shown below with that 4” rubber connector. The p...
